There’s a reason why I shouldn’t wait to blog until the end of the day.

I had a great time hanging out with some work mates last Tuesday.

This morning, I get up at the leisurely hour of 9:30 (I’m working evenings tonight, so I don’t go… Read More Thanks, Sweetie 🙂

Turns out, my lovely older sister Shelly (one of my 5 sisters) had mailed me… Read More Thankful for Big Sisters
